denver will decide if he gets another four years. he leaned on bill clinton to make the case this is no way he could have turned this around in four years. >> the economy is not fixed. i am telling you, nobody could have fixed this much damage in four years. the president's mock plan is better in the short run, the long run and a vision where all of us in this together is better than you be often your own. there is no on your own country in the world succeeding like those who have a good "we are all in this together" strategy. >>reporter: the order of questions is decided. the president gets the first. the problem with the argument that former president clinton made in 2009 president obama said if he didn't turn this around in 3 or 3 1/2 years it would be a one-term proposition. something governor romney will point out. >> the governor aides say -- the obama camp will focus on the economy, taxes and the deficit and will hit romney hard on the idea that bill clinton has been making and made at the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina, it does not add up
but had one of his best surrogates former president bill clinton aides say will be the primary case tonight which this was an economic crisis he inherited and tough to turn around in one term. take a listen to bill clinton. >> the economy is not fixed. i'm telling you nobody could have fixed this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run and a vision of we're all in this together is a heck of a lot better than you're on your own. there is no you're on your own country in the world succeeding like those who have a good we're all in this together strategy. [cheers and applause] none, not one. the challenge for the president tonight though is back in early 2009 he said if he didn't turn around the economy for n. three years it would be a one-term proposition. that's the problem when you are incouple again you have got a record that's going to it be under microscope not just from the moderator but mitt romney as well, shep. >> shepard: it seems he has a strategy of his own for going after mitt romney. >> when you talk
president clinton's high in the sky plan to spend $6 billion for clean energy. was dead on arrival. obama got $90 billion in his first months before his staff could find bathrooms in the west wing. just ridiculous. the stimulus was pouring unprecedented rivers of cash and renewables and energy efficiency and every imaginable form, advanced biofuel and electric vehicles and cutting edge research, smarter grid, cleaner coal, factories to make that green stuff in the united states. it was by far the biggest energy bill in history. kind of got me curious what else was in the stimulus everyone was laughing about. i did some investigative reporting with a google search. i learned that the stimulus had also launched race to the top which was a real moment. have you heard of race to the top? there was a huge deal in the education reform world that was supposed to transform public schools. i had no idea it was the stimulus program. did any of you? any way, it became clear there was a huge story can in plain view. most of the stimulus was standard keynesian stimulus, pumping money into the economy
hillary clinton. he then enacted the biggest mandate in the history of the country. so i think the best way -- what i would suggest is don't go on defense. everybody in politics has these change positions. so you go after the president for some of those really dramatic flip-flops that he's had just like everybody else. >> rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, he's in denver helping the romney campaign get ready for a huge night, debate night in america. mr. mayor, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, wolf. take care. >> thank you. >>> and just ahead here in "the situation room," we're going to hear from the other side, stephanie cutter, the deputy cap pain manager for barack obama, she's going to join us live from denver as well. that's coming up later. our new poll shows voters have very definite ideas about who they expect will win tonight. gloria borger is standing by. she's got the numbers. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color
a statement from the national security council. hillary clinton spoke to the turkish foreign minister and said the u.s. will support turkey in this. all are condemning syria and holding syria to account. this as also more trouble for the administration with benghazi. the hill is now asking for answers. they want a hearing next week. hillary clinton said today that no one wants to know more than she and the president what happened in benghazi, but we've confirmed that the fbi has not been able to get on the ground because of continuing security concerns, and at this point, more documents, secret and sensitive documents like this one, are still at large in that site being secured only by libyans at the scene and not well indeed. >> and on top of that there were demonstrators in the streets of tehran today because the currency there has collapsed. but we remind everybody that tonight's debate is at least supposed to be about domestic and economic items. andrea mitchell, part of our team in denver. we'll talk to you later tonight. >>> even given the clear and distinct choice between these two cand
clinton promised a full and open investigation into the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, three weeks ago. four americans, you'll recall, were killed, including ambassador chris stevens. there are a lot of questions about what happened. margaret brennan has been following this story and she's at the state department tonight. margaret? >> reporter: good evening, scott. the secretary of state reacted to pressure from the public, the press, and the house oversight committee to address the controversy around the administration's response to that attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. were there multiple requests for increased security in tripoli and benghazi and can you address whether washington or your office rejected those requests? >> well, let me start by cautioning everyone against seizing on any single statement or piece of information to draw a final conclusion. over the course of this review there will naturally be a number of statements made, some of which will be borne out and some of which will not. >> reporter: clinton and her aides have consistently po
has been hit with some criticism from some republicans for bringing former president bill clinton into the mix. >> we tried both approaches. the approach governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years, we ended up moving from surplus to deficits, and it all culminated in the financial crisis since the great depression. bill clinton tried the approach i'm talking about. we created 23 million you are in jobs. we went from deficit to surplus, and businesses did very well. martha: don't forget that bill clinton did very well for this president at his convention. but there is karl rove's tweet. the twittersphere was going braisey last night. karl rove said, mr. obama, you're not bill clinton. bill: what did charles think. syndicated column tonight charles krauthammer said there was a clear winner. >> romney won big. he won by two touchdowns. when he steps on the statement gives him stature. when he performs like romney did it changes the mow men tim. bill: krauthammer went on to say one de
. at the state department margaret brennan reports secretary clinton promises a full accounting. >> reporter: were there requests for increase in security in been gazay and did your office reject those requests? >> let me start by cautioning everyone against seizing on any single statement or piece of information to draw a final conclusion. over the course of this review there will naturally be a number of statements made, some of it -- some of which will be borne out and some of which will not. >> reporter: clinton and her aides have consistently pointed to intelligence reports that indicated there was no threat to the u.s. mission, and that it was intelligence agencies that initially said the attack was sparked by a spontaneous demonstration. >> i am aware too that many people are eager for answers. so am i, margaret and no one wants the answers more than we do here at the department. >> reporter: senior aides are handing over emails and paper work to congressional investigators who want to know who knew about the security situation in benghazi. the state department's own five person revie
, this is not the kind of policy you want to have. >> bill clinton tried the approach i am talking about. we created 23 million new job went from ficit to surplus and businesses did very well. so, in some ways we have data on which approach is more likely to create jobs and opportunities for americans and i believe that the economy works best when middle class families are getting tax breaks so they have money in l pockets and those of us who did extraordinarily well because of the magnificent country we are living in. >> so what came out on top after last night's showdown? we'll ask obama delegate brian benjamin and fox news contractor angela mccowan. >> thank you. >> it was a long night. angela who won and why? >> of course romney did. people want substance and solution and not glorified speeches. obama is good at that and he didn't have the teleprompter and he had to defend what he did. and sometimes he was babbling on and you coon understand -- couldn't understand him. romney stayed on point. he has to perform well in the next debate. >> before we get to the next debate. brian who do you think won
know, the clinton speech was the highlight of that convention, not the obama speech. and here he came into this, i think he sat on his lead last night and what you learn in this game is the other guy and by the way, i disagree with gloria on one thing. i think this was a new mitt romney we saw last night. one we haven't seen before. i don't think he was ever as effective in a primary debate as he was this time. he was head and shoulders above his performances in the past. >> he was a new mitt romney in a different way. i will say, he was as aggressive as he was in those primary debates when he needed to be. he's a good performer under pressure. but i do think the obama campaign has a point when they say this is a different mitt romney who is not the tea party mitt romney. this was somebody who said there is a role for government, he agreed with president obama on education to get those women voters on board. you know, it was a different calibration about a more centrist -- >> did you see a tack to the center? there were times romney was saying we'll keep the good things in obama care,
imposed against iran's nuclear program. secretary of state hillary clinton pledged anew today to get to the bottom of a deadly attack in libya last month. u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans were killed after gunmen assaulted the u.s. consulate in benghazi. now, two leading house republicans have charged the obama administration rejected requests for enhanced security at the site. clinton cautioned today against a rush to judgment. >> at the beginning of any kind of inquiry or investigation there are going to be different perspectives, different points of view, people trying to present what they believe applies to a certain set of circumstances. but i've also seen how important it is to get everything lined up and analyzed. >> holman: clinton also promised the investigative process will be transparent. more than two million factory workers walked off the job in indonesia today, in a one-day strike demanding better benefits. hundreds of thousands marched through the streets of a jakarta suburb. they called for an increase in the minimum wage plus health insur
, it is for the former president, bill clinton. it is simply this, get out there. get on the trail, sir. i think he's going to be out there next week. bill clinton should be out there every single day. i don't know what the dynamic is currently between him and the president -- >> it's wonderful. he's advertising for the obama campaign. >> you know what, maybe president obama needs to change debate partners. maybe he needs to go practice with bill clinton. john kerry is not cutting it. >> he should have bill clinton in his ear the whole time the explainer in chief. i think if bill clinton, i think he should probably bring big bird with him. >> didn't big bird get fired? >> big bird, get a safe house. do it now. >> the bromance lasts until november. >> my advice is for joe biden. do not try to overwhen sate by going in there charging like the bulls of pam plo na in your debate. the only thing that may be worse than an overly passive barack obama is an overly aggressive joe biden. >> a bull in a china shop maybe. >> maybe. listen, if he's hard to control when he's on script, just imagine him unscripte
. >> the obama camp had no problem slamming hillary clinton in the 2008 primary, top democrats privately tell me that part of mr. obama's strategy was hold back on the attack because it might look beneath the dig dignity of the office. >> no subject was more hotly contested last night than tax policy. jim angle takes a look at the fact and the fiction behind the claims. >> the two candidates jousted over taxes throughout the debate, romney wants to reduce tax rates by 20% across the board. but says he would keep a definite sit neutral by trimming some of the $1.2 trillion a year in tax deductions. president obama argues there aren't enough deductions that affect only the rich, so romney would have to hit the middle class. >> the only way to meet governor romney's pledge of not reducing the deficit or not adding to the deficit is by burdening middle class families, the average middle class family with children would pay $2,000 more. >> others have estimated the total value of the tax cuts would be some $5 trillion over ten years. governor romney says he will keep it deficit neutral and pledges th
. he said to mitt romney -- the line he said to hillary clinton, you are likable enough. neither one is apt to make a huge gaffe. >> who is undecided? this is all about. >> tiny amounts of people. tiny amounts of precincts in states. in some ways, it might not be mitt romney's last chance that it is his last best chance to break through and show people that he cares about them, he cares about their problems but that has been an issue for him. he has advantages on some of the other issues. so much of these debates is about the body language, the social clues. do they look pleasant? did they look like someone you want to have in your living room for the next four years? that will be important. >> in terms of the immediate impact of this debate, will we know after the media has pored over all the tricks and turns? >> we will know what the consensus of the media is. there are these polls, they will have some polls as early as tomorrow. we over analyze everything. i suspect in the next 48 hours, something will jell about what the outcome was. >> what about specific voter groups? president
during a very long extended campaign with hillary clinton. that obama that we saw last night was often fighting the real competitor, barack obama who ultimately prevailed over her in the long 08 primary. it was to me both things. president obama could have realized how well romney was doing and try to engage but he really didn't. jenna: let's talk about where the president has shown up over the last several weeks and months because the debate is just one part of a big campaign strategy. here ace list of a couple of the interviews that the president has done. "entertainment tonight." people magazine, the view, david letterman, jimmy fallon, glam or, magazine. he hasn't had a news conference in about seven months. considering that, a.b., how do you think this might change the president's strategy over the next several weeks up until voting day? >> well i think the president is going to realize that there was a universal consensus that mitt romney won the debate. the it didn't matter which party people were from, who they were supporting, everyone agreed mitt romney won. the president wil

that we should go back to the rates we had when bill clinton was president creating 23 million new jobs and creating more millionaires to boot. we can not only reduce the deficit, encourage job growth through small businesses that we're able to make the investments that are necessary in indication our energy. host: president obama wednesday night at the first debate. alan viard. guest: there are a few things i would take issue with. the bush tax cut to expire for the high income levels and we would be going back to the rate prevailed under president clinton. that is not quite right. there will be a new tax called the unearned medicare income tax will impose an extra 3.8% on interest, dividends, and capital gains. that will be 3.8% higher than clinton tax rates. there will also be a medicare tax will increase. i think that 18 numbers right for cutting taxes on small businesses. republicans have made a tactical mistake when they tried to market this on the ground that they are for small business. the goal of the tax cut is to remove distortions in the economy, but when you focus on its sp
exactly is causing the turmoil? is it the sanctions or as hillary clinton was suggesting or iran's mismanagement of the economy and where is this heading? could there will be a persian spring that somehow overthrows the regime? >> we thought we were headed in that direction in 2009. it is heartening to see there are enough people in iran to organize and express a view that pushes the government to be more responsive. it's very, very difficult to see how the current, at least starting of these protests, can get the critical mass that is needed to make a change in the regime there. if there isn't international support for it and organized opposition, these regimes like north korea, china and in times part they can weather this kind of turmoil without changeover for a very long time. >> gregg: israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu believes that iran is roughly nine months from spinning enough uranium to create a bomb. is that a fairly accurate timetable in your judgment? >> well, we don't get to know. i think once we have verification that they have the capability it's been too
to get a hint of his debate demeanor. check this out with me. first, with hillary clinton at the time obama's rival for the democratic nomination for president. >> set of assertions made by senator clinton as well as her husband that are not factually accurate. and -- >> you like to pretend like the war started in 2007. you talk about the surge, the war started in 2003. and the -- and at the time, when the war started, you said it was going to be quick and easy you said you knew where the weapons of mass destruction were, you were wrong. >> so that was a little taste for you on how the president goes into attack mode. jessica yellin, chief white house correspondent, also out there in denver for us. there is all this talk about, you know, what romney's challenge is going into tonight's debate. but what about the president? what about the challenge facing the president? is there any chance he takes the fight to romney? >> yes, in the sense that i expect that he will try to force romney to drill down and get specific about some of the tax changes that he would specify with the ways he wo
and recommendations to secretary clinton within 60 days of its first meeting, unless the chair determines a need for additional time. in simple terms, no time limit. do not expect anything before the election. now more than three weeks after the attack, the consulate in benghazi is still not secure. according to a "washington post" reporter on the ground in benghazi, sensitive documents, including the personnel files and records outlining efforts to rounds up loose weapons in libya can be found in plain sight. a republican on the house government oversight committee is criticizing the administration's state of of reliance on the f.b.i. investigation given agents are not in benghazi. >> the area is too dangerous for the f.b.i., but it wasn't dangerous enough for this administration to increase security. i'd like to ask that and i plan on doing it next week. >> fox news has confirmed the state department has yet to provide documents, including e-mails and other communications about security to republican senators corker, isakson, and the house intelligence committee. guys, back to you. >> steve: t
earlier who said the shelling has now stopped. secretary of state hillary clinton has called this a very, very dangerous situation. the fear is that it could escalate into a military conflict between turkey and syria. that would be massively destabilizing for the middle east and could even draw in the u.s. turkey is a nato ally. however this morning we've also heard of the senior adviser to the turkish prime minister, who seemed to quell those fears saying turkey has no intention of going to war with syria but that turkey is capable of defending its borders and will retaliate when necessary. >> holly williams, thank you so much. clarissa ward is with us now, reporting on the uprising in syria for more than a year. good morning. >> good morning, charlie and norah. >> good to have you here. >> thank you. >> what is the reaction on the part of the people supporting the rebellion against the government to the fact that they have not been getting the kind of assistance they hoped for or expected? >> i think there's a sense now not just of disappointment, but actually of real bitterness. they

of state, hillary clinton, called the turkish foreign minister and pled the united states support. syria was the ally of turkey but now it is a bitter enemy after syria erupted in a bloody civil war 19 months ago, a violent revolution which human rights groups say has killed some 30,000 people. the chief fox correspondent, jonathan hunt, is like with the news. tensions are clearly still very high along that border. >>jonathan: they are. syria share as lengthy border with turkey. it is just on the syrian side of that border where the rebels are in many towns the strongest. it is across that border that many of the refugees from the civil war in syria have fled. it is a border that turkey says it has the right and more importantly, perhaps, the ability to defend. in so doing, at the moment, it has the complete support of the united states. listen. >> from our perspective, the response that turkey made was appropriate. it also was designed to strengthen the deterrent effect so these kind of things don't happen again. it was proportional. >>jonathan: the syrian government apologized saying i
